Health & Well-Being


The Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS, in Finnish YTHS) provides health and medical care, mental health care and dental health care for university students who have a student union card.  FSHS is located near Sibelius Academy’s T-building at Töölönkatu 37 A. There is plenty of information about health and diseases at the FSHS website,

Carelia pharmacy at Runeberginkatu, next to Töölöntori, gives you a 5 % discount on presentation of a valid student card.

Psychological Counsellor and University Chaplain

Psychological Counsellors and University Chaplain, Henri Järvinen, offer their services to University of the Arts staff and students. Discussions  are free of charge and absolutely confidential. You do not need to be in crisis to go in and have a talk. If you just want a chat, that’s fine.

With Henri you can talk about anything between heaven and earth: joy, longing, sorrow, happiness, everyday life; you decide what the topic of the meeting will be. You can meet Henri at the Academy of Fine Arts, 6th floor, on Wednesdays between 3pm and 4pm, Sibelius Academy’s M-building, room S-4105 on Tuesdays between noon and 13.00 pm or at Theatre Academy, room 501 on Fridays. Make an appointment by e-mail to henri.jarvinen(at), call (09) 234 02543, or just go and see him during the office hours. You can also make an appointment outside the office hours.
